iOS 14 Beta 4 OTA Profile File Download Released Without Dev Account, Here’s How To Get It
Here’s how to download the iOS 14 beta 4 and iPadOS 14 beta 4 OTA configuration profile file without having an active Apple developer account. This process also doesn’t require you to have the UDID of your device registered via a developer account.
Things are starting to get interesting as far as iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are concerned. Apple’s internal engineering effort is starting to show as the company hurtles toward getting the software ready for prime time.
Developers are accessing the pre-release seeds as they come, with the general public also taking advantage of Apple’s public beta releases. With that said, if you are a member of the public who doesn’t have access to a developer account but who wants to access this latest release, then it is entirely possible to do so with the steps below.
Step 1: Launch Safari on your iOS 14/iPadOS 14-compatible iPhone or iPad. Once it has loaded, jump on over to this link here.
Step 2: Once the page has been loaded successfully, select the Download option to start the download of the required configuration profile to your device.
Step 3: On your iPhone or iPad, head to Settings > Profile Downloaded section and install the profile that you have just downloaded.
Step 4: With the profile installed, head to Settings > General > Software Update and wait for the device to connect to Apple’s servers. Of course, keep in mind that you will need an active internet connection in order to get the required response from Apple. Once it connects, you should see the “iOS 14 Developer beta 4” show up as an available download on your device.
Step 5: Select the Download and Install button to start the process of getting the iOS 14/iPadOS 14 developer beta 4 installed to your compatible device.
Once you have followed the steps above, you can sit back and relax and leave it to Apple’s servers and the device itself to get the relevant software installed to your device. You can sit back, relax as best possible, and wait for the process to finish. Keep in mind that you are installing what is only the fourth pre-release seed of a major firmware update so it isn’t going to be entirely flawless.
